Suzy Whaley, the first woman to qualify for a PGA Tour event in nearly 60 years, is blazing trails in the game of golf yet again.
Whaley is now the first female officer in the history of the PGA. Following her victorious vote at the association’s annual meeting, the new Secretary of the PGA of America stopped by Back9Network studios to join The Turn and The Clubhouse.
Former PGA Tour pro John Maginnes, longtime Golfweek Senior Writer Jeff Rude, and extreme sports champion Will Christien co-host Back9Network’s nightly talk show, The Clubhouse. The playful banter of Maginnes, Rude and Christien will echo the conversations one would hear at the 19th hole. The trio’s no-holds-barred discussions will cover the latest happenings both on and off the course, as they incorporate questions and guidance from viewers at home, celebrities and the game’s professionals.
Making a stop at The Clubhouse gives golf lovers across the country a perfect way to end the day, weeknights at 10 p.m. Eastern.
Back9Network’s flagship hour of golf, pop culture, debate, and entertainment will be delivered on The Turn. Co-hosted by veteran golf writer Shane Bacon, former E! Network Host Erica Bachelor, and Emmy Award-winning sports personality Lou Holder, “The Turn” will tackle the industry’s biggest topics by blending news, analysis and user-generated content with behind-the-scenes perspectives from the game’s most colorful icons and personalities. Shane, Erica, Lou, user-generated content, and social media interaction will guide the conversation.
Tune into The Turn airing Monday-Friday at noon, 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. EST on Back9Network — DIRECTV channel 262.
